John Denver Perhaps Love Lyrics

Last updated: 07/30/2014 05:41:42 AM

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don't know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, Love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel

For some a way of living
For some a way to feel

And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don't know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it's cold outside
Thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go

And some say love is everything
Some say they don't know

Perhaps love is like the Ocean
Full of conflict, full of painThank you
Like a fire when it's cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

love is letting go | Reviewer: juninax | 7/30/14

i was at a loss when the father of my daughter left of another woman. though I knew he was a hopeless case, preferring playing computer games to coming home and playing with our daughter, nonetheless i waited for him to grew up..all the waiting, and finally the painful betrayal, made me question if there is indeed love..i came upon this song and made me realize that love is letting go of the father of my daughter and holding on to my dear daughter. thanks to john denver for making me finally sever all the ties with the person i thought will be my husband and forever love.

Memories of Alistair 1936-1985 | Reviewer: Jean McGilp | 10/28/13

My husband,Alistair,died in my arms of a massive heart attack,
after only 4 years of marriage, in 1985. This sensitive song gave
me great comfort even then and still does,all these years later.
Its beautiful lyrics are memorable...especially "My memories of
love will be of you". Thank you, John Denver.

Absolutely Beautiful!! | Reviewer: Pamela | 5/23/13

Heard this song today for the first time. It's absolutely beautiful! I've not found one song of John Denver's that I didn't love, but this one...words cannot do it justice. It may be his best one. To reiterate...absolutely beautiful!!

Beautiful lyrics, beautifully sung | Reviewer: Hilary H | 4/1/13

We had this song played at my beloved mums funeral 3 weeks ago and there wasn't a dry eye in the house!! She was a great fan of John Denver and the combination with Placido Domingo is truly phenomenal. beautiful song, well written. This song will stay in my heart forever.

a new take on songs | Reviewer: michelle | 3/21/13

i heard that when john denver was recording this with placido domingo, he got advice from him about how sing a song, that you need to feel the lyrics, the music and that you need to convey that when you sing it. it changed john denver, he realized that placido was right, by doing this it changed the music, made it more personal, it reaches more people, gives them a personally connection. i think that is why many of his later music is so haunting and memorable and perhaps his best, one of my favourites is fly for me - about the shuttle tragedy.

not just K-pop obsession | Reviewer: ELF | 12/3/12

When I was young, my uncle wanted me to listen to this and he sang it to me so many times but I simply could not be into it, but now that I am older and I understand English way more than before, I heard it on the last episode of the FMV "Super Junior - A Walk To Remember" on Youtube and I cried forever. I really like this now.

food for the soul | Reviewer: hansuko chui | 6/14/12

In my generation, it is unimaginable for a young guy like me to be fond of this kind of song. But then i found it pleasing and beautiful. It lightens ones' feeling. When I'm alone with my mp3, I used to p[lay this song since it helps me to reflect more about what is in there. Perhaps it opens my world into some further horizon which my soul needs to fly in the vastness of its scenic, nostalgic and deafening silence which enables me to explore more without travelling anywhere.Sometimes experiences are experienced everyday, but it is reflection that unifies and gives meaning to all of it. Although it cannot exhaust but surely it gives beauty one can savor than just see.

sin fronteras | Reviewer: lupita | 5/12/12

Esta cancion y Annie's song son mis preferidas de John Denver. La primera vez que las escuche tuve que traducirlas con mucha dificultad con mi incipiente ingles. Ahora la maravilla de la red nos permite no solo escucharlas, sino tener su letra a la mano. Gracias a los poetas y cantantes, que nos regalan su inspiracion para expresar de manera tan bella nuestros sentimientos.

It was and always will be a song of love | Reviewer: Keith | 11/7/11

It is a beautiful Song. John Denver wrote this song during the time in his life when him and his first wife were going through the divorce process. He wrote it for her performed it and sent her a recording of the song 2 days after she signed the divorce papers. Even though they did divorce they remained the closest of friends. To John and Annie all that this song says about love is true to them both.

Glorious! With the blended voices in the lyrics it uplifts the heart & warms the soul. Reminds me of my lost love. I am deaf now and yet I can still hear this beautiful song in my head! Thank you John Denver for this lasting beauty!

Beautiful | Reviewer: lescon | 3/31/11

I wrote out the lyrics for a friend who lost her husband tragically. They had such a deep love for one another and I think this song has beautiful meaning for the love of two people or just love in general.

john denver and placido dimingo | Reviewer: georgina lebler | 2/24/10

philosopy graduate..deakin and monash.
As we try to qualify anything, measure it, see what it can sustain, somehow we sometimes come across almost immeasuable, unquantifialbe phenomena...such is love. It sometimes ignores reason, waits, is impatient, sometimes loathesome and hateful, but it stays without reason, with mind numbing viligance and dedication....unless of course it is abuse.

But what is a human without passion, without emotion, without fear and feeling...I suspect it can only be a person without a soul. I do not include those rendered such by others, only to say, that their souls have not been yet validated.
There is only one type of human/neandothol without a soul, if nothing else history itself has proved that. I was not part of those findings or conclusion....i leave science to is not my field.
The tragedy and gift in all of this song, for me, and I am not saying the struggle we face every day....without love is the same as being without shelter, warmth, protection and care
